After the street sessions on Monday and Tuesday, the rain on Tuesday night kept the musicians indoors. Rain today (Wednesday) also curtailed matters outdoors but the spirit of the Fleadh continued in the Scoil Éigse classes with traditional Irish music, dance and singing.
According to one of the organisers, the numbers attending the classes is at a record level of more than 900, which is evidence of the massive support for the Fleadh Down in Ennis. The classes are being attended by young people and adults from all over Ireland and farther afield.
The main influx of visitors is expected tomorrow (Thursday) ahead of the weekend competitions.
